Lost Sense Of Smell

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free since last June and feeling great but the last several days I have lost most of my sense of smell and everything I eat either tastes weird or like nothing at all. I have also been very fatigued the last couple of days and having dizzy spells.

It doesn't feel like I got glutened, that has happened several times so I know what that feels like and I have never lost my smell before. I am not congested at all but took a decongestant anyway but it didn't help at all.

Has anyone experienced anything like this?

I would talk to your doctor about it. Sometime similar happened to a coworker who had developed nasal polyps, but it didn't come on suddenly, so I don't mean to imply it is the same thing. (The lack of smell, though, probably explains the flat tastes.) Combined with the dizziness, however, it strikes me as being worthy of a trip to the doctor, out of concern for neurologic issues.
